Thiruvananthapuram: Two Rajasthani men were arrested in connection with a honey trap case registered here. The arrested persons are identified as Nahar Singh and Sukhdev Singh from Kaman of Rajasthan. Thiruvananthapuram city cyber police arrested them from Rajasthan for swindling money from a Thiruvananthapuram native man through honey trap.
The accused started friendship with the complainant through a fake profile pretending to be a college student named Ankitha Sharma.
